I want to connect SonicWall to my wall internet socket just to add a little bit more security to the link. The problem I am experiencing is that the device doesn't even recognize the connection. I talked to customer support and they told me that I need to input the username and password for the broadband line. Problem is, I don't seem to find anything of the sort.
Do I need a separate modem or sth of the sort in order to make that work?
Thank you in advance.
Had a quick look and it seems they are just routers so you will likely need a separate modem. DrayTek Vigor 130 or Netgear DM200. Unless, of course, the SonicWall device you bought states that it has a built in ADSL/VDSL modem.

Perhaps you can post the model number of the device you bought for clarification.
Thanks a lot. The SonicWall is a TZ300. I don't think it has an integrated modem so thank you for the recommendations on a model. I do have my username and password so hopefully that will work.
As you suspect no built in modem. I can personally recommend the DrayTek. Not cheap but I found it to be most reliable, never missed a beat.
